Article 5

We received notification that our article 5 has been signed and sent to CCAA in Beijing!!! I know some of you are thinking what does this mean now? Well this means that our TA ~ travel approval ~ will be coming in 3 to 4 weeks. This is very bitter sweet for us, because we have been waiting for Article 5 for some time now, and now that we have it, it has opened our eyes to our timeline in regards to our girls traveling with us. On that note ~ we have had another option open up for us! We are not sure what we are going to do, but have talked to the girls and we have some more talking to do later...... It has been a day of emotions for us but we are so blessed to have received the news today and be one step closer to TA :)

"Find rest, O my soul, in God alone; my hope comes from him"

Happy Saturday~

Good Morning,

I'm sure that all of you are getting ready for the Christmas festivities to come, or re cooping from the ones that have already happen. Christmas is a little different for us this year, we are not spending what have in the the past, because we hope we are not here. Lots of waiting this season, usually its waiting on Santa, but that's not the case this time. But the reality is that our Article 5 should have been signed and sent to Beijing already, and its not so TA still looks aways away. Things we are waiting on:

1. Article 5 to be signed and sent to Beijing

2. TA ~ travel approval before Dec 18th :)

3. Ashley to take and finish her first ACT test

4. Decision to purchase gifts for all

5. Kaylee's teeth to quit hurting because of the rubber bands

6. Kaylee's braces to come off ~ Jan 27th

7. But most important ~ Gods Timing!!!!!

Today is a special day for my girls, because they spend the day with their grandma and grandpa, eating, shopping and the big high light of the day ~ LOOKING AT CHRISTMAS LIGHTS!!! David and I will spend some due time together, since we have been so busy! Looking forward to some time with him having dinner and maybe doing some Christmas shopping!

I have been very busy on the fund raiser party orders...... Thank you all so much for your purchases, we are truly blessed to have your help through this wonderful, incredible journey! Much love to all, and enjoy your family time during the holiday season!
